Priceless, I don't know what your talking about. Have you ever emailed Das? I have several times and gotten response each, and I'm not a Democrat. Granted when he holds open office hours at a desk on the street he doesn't need that office space. I for one am in favor of them doing less rather than more so eliminate the whole office budget and then only the most important stuff will get done. Oh for the days when they held session every other year.

I'm a proponent of any type of housing but not at the expense of an oak grove that was required open space 27 years ago! Save the grove!

"Old" buildings? Since when are "old" buildings an impediment to learning? What? Your brain can't take in new information in an "old" building? Dilapidated is another story all together, it's speaks to poor stewardship by the Trustees and there is no excuses for it, just like there is no excuse for not finishing the drama complex. Don't leave things half finished! Put off what you haven't started and finish what your working on. Can it get any more basic than that?
As to poor planning, more Trustee failure......

Neil Young carried the show and Richie Furray's voice was near perfect. Stills slowly kicked in rising to near perfection on the Bluebird jam. Mr. Soul was excellent, vibrant with Young's professionalism. Probably your only chance ever to hear their classics performed by the the mostly original members. One non- original BS song closed the show, Young's Rockin in the Free World, and they kicked bett with it!

I've always been a huge fan of National defense, but the budget doubled from 2000 to 2010. That's insane!!!!

Is the Independant reporting every suicide in Santa Barbara or just those involving the bridge? Maybe if they stopped reporting jumpers people would use it less.

Pointing to the void down the road or to the cheaters and saying these programs were a waste of money is like focusing on Marylin Monroe's mole and calling her ugly. The temporary fix is for what is hoped to be a temporary problem, a recession. The idea is to make the hole we are falling into less deep even if digging out takes a little longer. And what about the offsetting tax revenues generated by the increase (or less decrease) in economic activity as a result of these policies?I must agree with Prof. Rupert's analysis on extending unemployment benefits. This is likely keeping millions from competing with illegal aliens for farm worker jobs.
